He collapsed on the kitchen floor and died right there. I have one daughter who I don’t see as her dad fell out with her years ago.
I do like him very much but I worry about his lack of commitment.
I’m lonely and want a full life again – all my friends are married or have partners and I feel very isolated.
I think it’s fantastic that you’re ready to love again and move on.
But I don’t think you should necessarily be looking for your next life partner.
He has been married before and says he doesn’t want a serious relationship, explaining that he doesn’t want to get hurt again.
However, I’m not like that – I wouldn’t hurt anyone and I’m nothing like his ex-wives (he’s been married twice).
I just want someone to love, talk to and go out with.
Do you think he will come round to my way of thinking or am I just wasting my time with him?
You feel lonely and I totally get that but why not enjoy this man’s company for what it is, even if it’s just to slowly ease yourself back out there?
Have nice meals, go for a drink or to the cinema – it doesn’t have to be physical.
And as you get to know each other better, he might start to feel less worried about getting involved with someone else.
